As if that was nothing at all, seeing PBS allow a "debate" between a D and R pundit (with a Tea Party freedomworks author on the side) { http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/politics/july-dec10/primaryanalys_09-15.html } doesnt even seem post worthy as Ive come to expect this kind of BS from the PBS foundation brand propaganda apparatus, but this little skit they produced with the Mex. ambassador was too much for my peek and poke typin ass to resist.

(read the bold quotes)
..............

RAY SUAREZ: On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Mexican Revolution, the 200th anniversary of the struggle for independence, there are Mexican troops in the streets of major cities.

Is this a country that's getting a grip on its problems? As we mark this 200th birthday, can you say that you have turned a corner?

ARTURO SARUKHAN: I think we have, Ray.

And let's not miss one very important issue. Troops on the streets are not there because the troops made the decision to be on the streets. They are there because they have been mandated by the president, by the government, as a stopgap measure to take on organized crime.

The United States, for a good reason, has the Posse Comitatus Act, which prevents the armed forces from being put into law enforcement roles, for a very powerful reason. Armed forces are not trained to do law enforcement issues, the same way that the Mexican armed forces are not trained to do law enforcement issues.

But it is clear that, given where we were in the fight against organized crime, the degree of penetration that organized crime had achieved, especially at the state and local level with municipal police forces, the only instrument that we had available to push back and create the breathing space where socioeconomic programs, where the strengthening of the judiciary could flower was by using the army to push back.

So, one of the distinguishing facets of Mexico, as we celebrate, with other Latin American countries this year, our bicentennials of independence, is that Mexico is one of the very, very few countries in Latin America that never saw a military coup since the revolution in 1910.

RAY SUAREZ: During the past week, the U.S. secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, compared Mexico's current problems to those of Colombia at the height of its internal civil war over drug dealing.

Is it an apt comparison? Does it capture the degree of challenge to your state and its future?

ARTURO SARUKHAN: The secretary has been undoubtedly the driving force behind the vision that we have established with the U.S. administration as to how we deepen this bilateral relationship and how we work together in the fight against drugs.

She stated very clearly -- and she's done so in the past -- how these two countries, Mexico and the United States, need to work co-responsibly, that, as Mexico seeks to down the flow of drugs moving north, the United States needs to step up to the plate and shut down the flow of weapons and cash moving south. So, she fundamentally understands this important challenge. The issue of -- of what makes Colombia and Mexico similar or dissimilar is an ongoing debate. I think both countries certainly face the challenge of, how do you create and enhance the rule of law?

I think Colombia 20 years ago, Mexico today, are facing the same challenge. How do you push back and how do you ensure the empire of liberty and the rule of law?  (read that again...)

Now, there are certainly differences. In Colombia, you had and you still have a three-pronged challenge to the state: organized crime, insurgents, insurgencies, groups that are determined to topple the government, whether it's the ELN or the FARC, and paramilitary groups. Mexico has none of this. What we have in Mexico is basically very sophisticated, very brutal, but organized crime. We don't have that similar challenge that Colombia faced and has been facing for now several decades........

WHere how what why when in what way does any of the NAFTA and continuation of this hundred year old Hearst Publishing "drug" war against hemp paper-pulp nonsense have anything to do with Rand Paul?
